Historic architecture in Round Rock

Round Rock Historical Collectionis a project documenting the history of Round Rock, funded in part by a grant from the Texas Historical Commission. These pages are an adaptation of the original 1991 print version.

The architecture of the older parts of Round Rock is fairly typical of this period, although there are a few notable exceptions. Most of the buildings in the center were built between 1876 and 1881, although a few buildings have façades that date to later eras. Round Rock is also fortunate to have a well-preserved housing stock that shows the evolution of middle-class housing styles from the 1870s to the present day.

Downtown business district

Most of the historic buildings along Main Street from Mays to Lampasas are of simple limestone construction. The door and window arches show little decorative features, and the roof lines are unadorned or have tight spandrels.
